Candice (and Phil)

 

Phil: (approaches Candice, who is sitting at the window) Mind if I sit here?

Candice: Go right ahead.

Phil: I’m sorry, I’m not very good at bus etiquette. I don’t take the bus.

Candice: Oh.

Phil: My car broke down.

Candice: That’s too bad.

Phil: I work in an office downtown, and I usually drive.

Candice: I see.

Phil: My car has been in the shop for a week now.

Candice: You must really miss it.

Phil: I do. They think it’s something to do with the alternator, but I think it’s a computer problem.

Candice: (nods) Ahh.

Phil: I work on computers all day so I know a thing or two about computers.

Candice: I see.

Phil: So what do you do for a living?

Candice: I’m a dominatrix.

Phil stares, mouth hanging open.

Candice: I work in a dungeon where I tie up men and occasionally women, and I torture them for money.

Phil, frozen, continues to stare.

Candice: I take it you’ve never tried it?

Phil takes out his cell phone and dials a number. Candice watches him.

Phil: (into the phone) Yeah, Discount Car Rental? Do you have any cars available? … Now. … Where? (holds the phone away from his ear and speaks to Candice, enunciating as though talking to a deaf person) What’s. The. Next. Stop?

 

Next stop: Tuesday, September 26th, 1:00pm
